The famine had more to do with gavelkind than London.
There was a lot of food grown in Ireland then.

Some of it could have been fed to people who were dying of starvation instead of exporting it.

That decision was made at the highest level of the Imperial government and backed up by the London media.

That replicates the Brexit situation now.

A 21 yr old woman,Chloe Middleton, with no pre-existing conditions has just died of Covid-19 in the UK, according to the most read newspaper in the UK, the Daily Mail. RIP.

Time for young people to take this seriously.

Turned out be a Turkey Dummy for the Labour Party.

He was a protest junkie who proved himself incapable when given a real job. Thats as good as it ever got for Jeremy.

Oh and by the way he became a very Wealthy Champagne Socialist as he pottered his way along ! ! ! Nice ‘ Work ‘ if you can get it ! ! !
Britain would be in vastly better condition during this crisis under a Corbyn Regime!

Washington Post reporting that Conservatives in the US are pushing against present corona virus policies.

Interesting to watch what happens there in the near future.

I suspect Prince Charles was committed to the essential function of shaking thousands of hands at long planned events, when these should have been stopped at least 2 weeks ago.

I'd hold off on the abuse of the Brits and back slapping for Leo just yet. It's early days yet and concerns about the ability of the Irish health service to cope with the expected escalation after 12 years under Holohan remain valid.

We appear to be testing more in fairness although other than as an exercise in convincing the population of the need for isolation not entirely sure what that achieves of itself. Lets see how this all plays out first.

Given the up to now daft policy of the UK and Nordie Governments and our open borders with both, they have been our weakest link in this fight!
However, I expect an overwhelmed HSE to overtake them as the weakest link and soon enough!

NI's death toll is now just 2 below the Republic's. NI has 27% of the island of Ireland's population but 43% of the Coronavirus deaths. Shows the damage of the confused messages from the Johnson government.

Dearghoul should know that "Gavelkind" (i.e. subdivision) had been banned in 1603 after the Nine Year War, and then reintroduced but only for Catholics in the Popery Act 1703. The argument that the "Irish" subdivided their land is misleading because for generations it was compulsory, and by the time the law was repealed the seeds of the famine had already been sown. I understand that the Popery Act 1703 wasnt fully repealed until 1828.

Article in the Daily Telegraph today says the following:

'The PM was panicked into abandoning a sensible Covid-19 strategy, and has plunged society into crisis.

Boris Johnson risks being flattened by an obsolete ideology crumbling under the weight of its own contradictions
Beyond the slam of lockdown, does one detect the gentle quivering of a Prime Minister who has lost his nerve? What irony that Boris Johnson’s opponents have failed to pick up on this weakness. In their desperation to whip up hysteria against No 10’s “insufficient” coronavirus response, the liberal media has missed what could prove the century’s biggest scoop.


Namely that, faced with the protestations of the London bubble, the PM has jettisoned the only sensible strategy for dealing with the biggest global crisis since the Second World War.'

That is some statement in favour of herd immunity and against the elderly.

Status of COVID-19
As of 19 March 2020, COVID-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious diseases (HCID) in the UK.

The 4 nations public health HCID group made an interim recommendation in January 2020 to classify COVID-19 as an HCID. This was based on consideration of the UK HCID criteria about the virus and the disease with information available during the early stages of the outbreak.
Now that more is known about COVID-19, the public health bodies in the UK have reviewed the most up to date information about COVID-19 against the UK HCID criteria. They have determined that several features have now changed; in particular, more information is available about mortality rates (low overall), and there is now greater clinical awareness and a specific and sensitive laboratory test, the availability of which continues to increase.

The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) is also of the opinion that COVID-19 should no longer be classified as an HCID.
